How can we improve Azure SQL Database?

PolyBase: Support for Azure SQL Database

Azure SQL Database does not currently support Polybase, though it is supported in the on-premise version.

    Need this feature in Azure SQL Database to enable SQL querying of files in ADLS. This is a must have feature to replace Hive on Hadoop.

    Any updates on this one? This feature would simplify our solution design considerably.

    Especially now that Hyperscale is going to be available, this would be a very useful feature. Hyperscale would make a superior data mart platform, but only if it could be loaded quickly enough.

    This is a must have feature. I don't understand why SQL Server 2016/2017 and Azure SQL Datawarehouse have it but not Azure SQL Database...

    I wonder the reasons why it's not possible to have this feature.
    If this feature is not available, Azure should at least have cheaper plans for Azure SQL Datawarehouse.
    The lowest prices for SQL Datawarehouses are not competitve as compared to AWS Redshift or Google BigQuery.

    Please MS support data virtualisation as PaaS. Clients ask to have this in their modern Data Warehouses!

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    lack of Polybase for Azure, essentially limits the uptake of your PaaS DB. Essential for organisation

    It would be great to get polybase on Azure SQL Database. Especially for the companys that don't need Azure SQL Data Warehouse, but want to ingest theri data into Data lake, according to the lambda architecture

    Is this something that is even on the radar? We need this yesterday!!!

  • Ray commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    absolutely support this.

    Agree with other comments that it should have been available in SQL Azure first.

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Why does MS Keep prioritizing SQL over Azure SQL? Azure SQL is the future. Get with the program guys.

    Any way we can find out where this request stands, such as it's something that's being considered and if so for when?
